You could try to turn off UAC and see if it works then. If not, it will never work. There were minor incompatibilities between Office 97 and Windows XP already, and they won't be smaller now.
Your only option then (if XP or Office 2000 aren't an option): free Open Office. Not a bad option, by the way.
Hello, I am trying to install office 97 on a dell laptop running vista business. When I click on the setup file I get the usual vista permission dialog box, I click allow but then nothing happens. The dialog box goes away but no installation screen comes up, there isn't even the setup process running in task manager.
Unfortunatly getting a newer version of office is not an option, and neither is going back to xp.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
